A task force on ChatGPT has been established by the organization that unifies European privacy watchdog creates ChatGPT, marking a potentially significant first step towards a uniform policy on establishing privacy regulations for artificial intelligence.
The action by the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) comes after an independent decision by Italy to restrict ChatGPT last month, a stance that Germany’s commissioner for data protection suggested should be adopted in Europe’s largest economy. On Thursday, Spain’s AEPD agency announced that it, too, will open a preliminary probe into possible ChatGPT data breaches.

Concern has also been expressed by experts, the U.S. government, and several other European governments over the quick use of ChatGPT and other comparable AI technologies.
According to the EDDB statement, “The EDPB members reviewed the recent enforcement action launched by the Italian data protection authority against OpenAI regarding the Chat GPT service.” It made the decision to establish a special task force to promote collaboration and information sharing regarding potential enforcement actions taken by data protection authorities.

They said that policy specialists, as opposed to decision-makers, attended the meeting on Thursday and shared their perspectives and suggestions. The EDPB is a separate organization that monitors data protection laws in the
